Shade Lover

For such a plant, these Monarda boast large, colourful blossoms and an impressive vigourous growth rate. Gardeners will appreciate its very mildew resistant, glossy green, compact foliage.
The open carnation like blooms are borne during summer and through autumn. Flowering is easy but they need cooler areas to be at their best. They are easy to grow in cooler areas of the garden in moderately fertile garden beds. Mulching is beneficial.
